Hanging and crashing since Windows 10

Recommended Posts

Hello, 

I've been using Paint.net forever, through several Windows and paint.net versions, however since I have installed Win10, I have been experiencing regular hangs and crashes, and it takes much longer to start up. (It will usually go into "not responding" before it finally arrives) .. I haven't been able to pin any kind of pattern so I can re-create the problem; I believe it's just random.. (It might be only on Open and Saves .. but I can't be sure. I'll pay attention from now on.)  Yes I do have the current version 4.0.6 ..

 

Any ideas as to what might cause this?

And I thought it was just me, I also have this issue since installing Windows 10 and paint.net 4.0.6 (no crash though, but often a not responding prompt in the upper left of the ui.

It's hard for anyone to make an educated guess with symptoms alone.  Maybe if you provide some info about your computer's specs.  (Make, model, CPU, memory, etc.)

I've been running Win10 for a couple of weeks now on my Editing Desktop (i7) and my LapTop (i3). I haven't experienced this issue however....

 

Without a doubt Win10 is a bigger resource hog than Win7 or Win8.1. I don't notice the difference so much on my Desktop(i7), but I certainly notice it on my Laptop (i3). I used a nifty utility called "0&0 Shutup10" to disable many of the useless hidden processes running in the background. This definitely helped with the speed and efficiency.
